Number of ways of selecting 4 numbers out of 10 without repeating

$=^{10}P_4=\frac{10!}{(10-4)!}=\frac{10!}{6!}=5040$

There are 5 odd numbers in 0 to 9 which are 1,3,5,7 and 9.

Number of ways of selecting 4 numbers out of 5 without repeating

$=^{5}P_4=\frac{5!}{(5-4)!}=\frac{5!}{1!}=120$

So probability that the code only contains only odd numbers

= Number of favorable outcomes/Total number of outcomes

= 120/5040

= 0.02381
